Movie? Maybe yes maybe no. But we're meeting either way.

I stopped by Hawthorne's this afternoon and spoke to the manager. Since they don't have much in the way of a separate room at that location, she needs to talk to the owner about our request to screen a movie while we eat and have a cold beverage. She'll call me.

We'll see what happens. If by chance we can't do it, Brendan and I will find another central location where we can eat, drink AND watch a movie for the January and February meet-ups. Hate to pass on their great pizza though...

Brendan - you like how I just committed you to that out of the clear blue sky with no warning or agreement on your part?

So stay tuned..... Either way, we're on for pizza and drinks at Hawthorne's on 7th Street Thursday, December 17th around 6 PM or so.

I am planning on being there. Not sure which scoot to bring though. Rode the DR last time. Maybe I'll bring the Nighthawk this time. Time to break out the thermals either way.

I haven't heard anything. Based on the conversation I had with the manager on Thursday, if we do get the go ahead, it'd be best to use the LCD TV with the built in dvd player (mine) instead of an LCD projector.

So for this time, we won't need the projector from CMS. And again, if this doesn't work out at all (the movie), we'll find a place for the January meet-up that works better for movies. I also just ordered the dvd "Mondo Enduro" as well....

Look forward to seeing folks on Thursday!

Welcome! See you Thursday around 6 or whenever. We'll be in the bar area commandeering a couple of tables!

I was planning to attend but I will be in Atlanta that day on business. Week days are tough for me but hopefully next time. Have a great time!

That's fine - let's try it w/ the combo player and see if it works out. Can you attach some kind of external speakers to the DVD player (like powered computer speakers or such)? Reason I ask: that setup might allow us to get the sound to everyone in our group more efficiently, w/o a loud volume overall that would annoy the rest of the customers. No biggie though!

I just got Mondo Enduro about 1/2 year ago, great flick!

My MCL Det. is gift wrapping in North Lake Mall, at Borders... I already signed up to man the table Wednesday and Thursday evening.

Have fun, enjoy the film.

We'll miss ya Mike but it sounds like it's for a good cause.

On a happier note, I have heard from Hawthorne's and we can indeed set up our movie! It'll be on my 26" LCD TV with built-in DVD player. Brendan had a good point about the sound so I'll have to see if I can come up with an option (Brendan - PM sent).

So..... Pizza, beer and a movie about motorcycles (albeit it on a smallish screen with maybe questionable sound). I like it.

See y'all there!
